"... Mr Turnbull used a key speech in... Shanghai to... call on the Communist leadership to grant greater freedoms and develop a stronger rule of law... " (PM urges new commitment to rule of law, Mark Kenny/Philip Wen, Sydney Morning Herald, 15/4/16)
What a fearless crusader for human rights is M'Lord Turnbull! Imagine saying that to the Chinese in China!
But would he say the same to the Israelis in Israel? Just imagine:
'Mr Turnbull used a key speech in... Tel Aviv to call on the Zionist leadership to grant greater freedoms to Palestinians and develop a stronger rule of law in the occupied West Bank...'
After all, as a recent Haaretz editorial stated:
"When the prime minister, defense minister, education minister and justice minister are all working against the highest court of the land, it shows Israel is not ruled by law, certainly not when it comes to what happens beyond the Green Line." (Israeli ministers vs the rule of law, 29/7/15)
No, it's impossible to imagine M'Lord Turnbull coming within cooee of such a call.
I'm afraid his Message from the Prime Minister: Passover 2016 is about as close as he'll ever get to the subject:
"The enduring example of the Israelites' deliverance from slavery resonates down through the ages, and with all who seek freedom from oppression." (jwire.com.au)
